Youth Advocacy. Animal Liberation. Anti-oppression.
We’re not the future of a movement. We are a movement.
We’re The Raven Corps—a youth-powered community of activists here to dismantle systems of oppression for animals, humanity, and our natural world. We advocate for a better today so that we can all thrive in a more sustainable and compassionate tomorrow.

Mobilizing youth activists and building community
We know that change is possible when we join together to fight for justice and root activism in our own backyards. Ravens tackle some of the most pressing issues of our time — think climate change, racial justice, animal liberation, mental health struggles, etc (the list is FAR too long). We believe in a holistic, multi-dimensional approach to our activism, and here’s how we do it:
Our model of “Corps” (chapters) creates online hubs of youth activists (“Ravens”). We organize online and mobilize in our towns and cities, supporting one another as we grow as leaders and advocates.
We believe, with our whole hearts, in the power of community and welcome fellow youth activists from around the world. Our virtual youth activist community center is an encouraging, safe space where young people convene, collaborate, and organize. Plus, we host loads of fun advocacy and community-building events.
We create change by taking action. Whether it’s through a roundtable discussion over Zoom or Ravens hitting the pavement to protest, we advocate for a world we all deserve, both online and on the ground.
What the Ravens say
“I love being a part of the Raven Corps. I’ve never been in such a supportive community of like-minded young activists and feel there is a lot of fun and celebration in constantly learning and evolving here. Being a Lead Raven gives me a lot of freedom and support to do things in my community and to reach out.Rowan Spillman, Lead Raven
I’ve been a part of the Raven Corps since the beginning of 2021, and it’s been one of the best organizations I’ve been a part of. It’s hard for a lot of youth activists to organize with a good community, but the Raven Corps has somehow found a way to do just that. If you’re looking for a community of badass birds who are tired of the world’s shit, you’re at the right place!Shubhangi Bose, Lead Raven
I’m a raven because I want my voice to matter and change to be made in the face of the ridged expectations of a society that shuns it. I hope that we can inspire more vegans, non-vegans, and animal lovers alike to take part in meaningful changes to shift our generation’s focuses to achieve a more peaceful world.Noahble Roberson, Lead Raven
